Importance of Following the Sahaba (رضي الله عنهم)
Explanation of hadith:
The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
… those of you who live long among you after me will see great disagreement. You must then follow my sunnah and that of the rightly-guided caliphs. Hold to it and stick fast to it. Avoid novelties, for every novelty is an innovation, and every innovation is an error.
[Sunan Abu Dawud]
